Roc Marciano – Emeralds (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 29th, 2012 by Hyphen

Roc Marciano has been killing it for years (you should remember those old Flipmode records) and recently, he’s starting to finally get the credit he deserves. Here are the new visuals for “Emeralds” off his upcoming project, Reloaded, dropping this summer.

Heavy D, Kool G Rap, Grand Puba, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane, Pete Rock, and Q-Tip – Don’t Curse (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Throwbacks on November 8th, 2011 by Hyphen

RIP Heavy D! I never met Heav, but from all accounts, he was an incredibly positive and amazing person. He was a classic hip-hop icon that could span all sub-genres of the culture to get love from everyone. Don’t just remember the uptempo pop songs and dance moves…dude could rhyme.

He’ll be missed in this industry and worldwide.

Kooley High ft. HaLo – Atmosphere (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 22nd, 2011 by Hyphen

The Kooley High homies have released a video for my favorite track off Eastern Standard Time, which means SNSS listeners should remember it from when it first dropped.  The beat is too smooth, though I can’t help but hear that Q-Tip sample and want to listen to “Find A Way”…

Q-Tip – Renaissance Rap (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 19th, 2008 by Hyphen

Rik Cordero and the team at Three/21 Films connected with Q-Tip for another video off his new album, The Renaissance, which is in stores now.  I need to listen to the full project, cause everything I’ve heard so far has been pretty dope.  Be on the lookout for the next Cordero/Tip collab for “Manwomanboogie” dropping soon…

Q-Tip – Move (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 15th, 2008 by Hyphen

New video for Tip’s “Move,” directed by the uber-busy Rik Cordero.  So let me get this straight: by filming a simple clip based on a style 25 years old (“I wanna rock with youuuuuu”), Rik and Tip made a better video than 95% of what rappers are dropping?  Artists on majors need to step their game up and try something different, even if it’s a nod to the past like “Move.”  Good ish.

Swiped from 2DopeBoyz.

Q-Tip – Gettin’ Up (official video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on September 12th, 2008 by Hyphen

While an unofficial video for this leaked a while back, here’s the real deal.  I dig this song, but something about the Greg Nice style rhyming kinda annoys me, I can’t front.  Still good to see Tip coming with another album and it was dope to see him at Rock The Bells last weekend.  Here’s an ill pic of Mos Def pointing out Tip’s lyrics to “Excursions” as he spit ’em.  Ill.

Mos & Tip

Shout to Dreezy for the great picture…

Q-Tip – Gettin’ Up (video)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on August 26th, 2008 by Hyphen

New unofficial video for Tip’s “Gettin’ Up” single swiped from OKP.  Speaking of Q-Tip and Rock The Bells, despite a bit of a scare, it’s now confirmed: A Tribe Called Quest WILL be performing at RTB in Washington! Whew, that was a close one.  September 6th at the Gorge, be there!
